This volume on communicable diseases transmitted through contact or through unknown means is the second one to be published in the series of communicable diseases encountered by the United States Army in World War II. It was preceded by Vol. IV (1958) on diseases transmitted chiefly through the respiratory and alimentary tracts, and is to be followed by a volume dealing with the arthropod-borne infections. These three, together with Vol. II (Environmental Hygiene) and Vol. III (Personal Health Measures and Immunization), comprise the contributions to the history of the Medical Department of the U. S. Army in the Preventive Medicine Series.

The topics to be reviewed within the scope of Vol. V are the diseases of major military importance in the U. S. Army or those of major significance in the civilian population of the bivouac or combat areas of the Army.
